A few weeks ago i posted two images of a fountain-sculpture, taken with a 20/3.5 and 105/2.5.
Today I came across this fountain again and snapped a picture with the 55/1.2:

light and framing are sub-optimal, but I like to try to get more than 1 image out of a given subject

Peter, I really like the autumn colors you've captured above. But I'm happy to report that I actually enjoy the spring here ;-)
Btw, the light on the second shot works great - it really brings out the leaf-textures


+1 !

btw Georg, I liked your last b/w pics!

Peter, love your autumn leaves. The picture perfectly fits in our season, although Georg seems to have caught some sun today.
Georg, like your blowball wide-open and the fountain-sculpturen.
Sam, some impressive clouds in your supercell.

I tramped through the woods looking for birds and almost got a pair of cardinals, but alas I have a nice photo of a branch where they used to be. Went back to the car and the only shot I got all day was this dragonfly on the antenna of my car. d600 300mm 4.5 -

Nonetheless, its a neat shot. I live in an area where there are lots of these around, but they are all uppity and won't let me take their picture.

Peter - I like the first one the best.

Georg - What a risque shot!

Ray - Fantastic shot, not a wasted walk at all.

Philippe, Peter, Paul, Leighton and Ray - thanks, I'm happy that you like the blowball and/or fountain!

Ray, the dragonfly-shot is amazing. Your - apart from the dragonfly - "resultless" birding-trip was exactly what I meant a few pages back. I'm in awe about the patience and dedication of birders and nature-photographers.

Thank you Georg - photography is like fishing - sometimes it requires a lot of patience

I had to track this guy all day long through the Wisconsin woods - hard to get close enough with just a 300mm lens - actually, the zoo is only 10 mins from my office and I had some time over lunch

The old lion went out to lounge in the sun - this is shot through some bushes, which looks like I added a vignette, but that's in camera

Tiger with its young audience behind thick glass - tried black and white but in color it is easier to grasp what is going on
